About the book
In the near future: Earth is an ecological nightmare, and humanity may well go the way of the dinosaurs. But overhead orbits salvation. A vast metallic island in space, Trikon conducts research too risky to be held on earth--research which could save the planet.
Yet Commander Dan Tighe discovers that the Trikon's major project is espionage. Its crew is split into warring factions; its scientists--consumed by greed, lust and drugs--run the lab for their own gain.
Only Commander Tighe can save the Trikon--and only Trikon can save the earth.

About Bill Pogue
William Reid Pogue (January 23, 1930 March 3, 2014) was an American astronaut and pilot who worked for the U.S. Air Force (USAF) as a fighter and test pilot, and reached the rank of colonel. He was also a teacher, public speaker and author.
Born and educated in Oklahoma, Pogue graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University and enlisted in the USAF in 1951 and served for 24 years. He flew combat during the Korean War and with the USAF Thunderbirds, served as a flight instructor and mathematics professor at the United States Air Force Academy, and was a test pilot whose service included a two-years exchange with the Royal Air Force.
During his service as a flight instructor, Pogue was accepted as a trainee astronaut for NASA in 1966. His NASA career included one orbital mission as pilot of Skylab 4, whose crew conducted dozens of in-orbit research experiments and set a duration record of 84 days the longest crewed flight that was unbroken in NASA for over 20 years. The mission also had a dispute with ground control over schedule management that news media named The Skylab Mutiny. Pogue retired from the USAF and NASA a few months after he returned from Skylab, after which he taught and wrote about aviation and aeronautics in the U.S. and abroad. Pogue died in 2014, aged 84, and was survived by three children, four stepsons, and his third wife.
